I have a set $$A=\left[0, \frac {\pi}2 \right] \cap \left \{ x \in \mathbb{R} : \sin {x} \in \mathbb{R} \setminus \mathbb{Q} \right \} $$ and I need to prove that $A$ is Borel set. I really tried to it, but I have no more ideas.

Since $\left[0,\dfrac{\pi}{2}\right]$ is a closed set, it generates the Borel Algebra and therefore, it is borel. The other set contains isolated points, so it is the countable (since you can label each interval with a rational number and $|\mathbb{Q}|=\aleph_0$) union of singletons, therefore it is also closed. Then, $\left[0, \frac {\pi}2 \right] \cap \left \{ x \in \mathbb{R} : \sin {x} \in \mathbb{R} \setminus \mathbb{Q} \right \}$ is a closed set (finite intersection of closed sets is closed). Therefore, $A$ is a borel set.
